When nissan said they were reviving the dots and brand it raised a few eyebrows.

This is why.

You may remember this from your number days.

Now nissan is promising something new and improved.

Here is what he had to say at the launch in new delhi.

High-growth markets are asking for high-quality, top reliability products that will allow them to realize the dream of new car ownership.
